Money being thrown, nice cars that haven’t come out yet doing donuts, women twerking wearing more jewelry than clothing – these are the type of things you typically see in a rap video. Now, rap music/culture is a facet of nig nog culture and has multiple facets in itself, but as of right now I’m referring to nig nog rap.
Well it’s the summer of 2016 and as most of you have already seen, the Oppression Olympics are in full swing. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, it’s basically the battle that different minorities and groups go through to try to prove that they’re more oppressed than the rest, and as such deserve special treatment.
Heh, the nig nog.
This is a topic I’ve been through quite a few times on twitter as it gives me plenty of ammo to analyze and critique the nig nog in its natural habitat. Now don’t get me wrong, nig nog isn’t a strictly black thing, it’s just that 99.9% of the nig nog population I’ve seen has been so. I grew up in and surrounded by the culture, so a lot of this I can either relate to or attest to, and that’s why I feel like I’m qualified to do this post.
